Don't know if I'm the first to post on this...

But as was announced, there will be a Queen night on American Idol next Tuesday.

How much are people willing to bet that the band will be making a surprise appearance on the Vote-results show.

What makes me wonder is...

a) April 12th is an off-day (no concert on the QPR tour.

b) The news says the show will be a special ONE HOUR long episode where the final 8 will be performing a QUEEN medley.

c) Brian is hinting at something on his Soapbox.

I'm sorry- too little too late they should have done this a few weeks ago. Personally I can't stand AI... never watch it. Funny- Roger especially has been not that supportive of Idol in the past..Gack

Supposedly, they ran a teaser last night.

The whole band didn't fly to LAX right after the San Diego gig - Danny drove up from San Diego with us, and we spent the day at a couple of our favorite pubs and our favorite sushi bar in SoCal.

The teaser showed the band rehearsing with the AI contestants on stage. No idea what they sounded like as they played the studio version of WWRY during the clip.

Lately, for those of you who don't watch, they have been having experts coach the singers each week: Stevie Wonder, Barry Manilow, Kenny Rogers.

So, Brian and Roger will be the "rock experts" - coaching and giving advice to the contestants. This is like hitting the lottery for those poor kids in my opinion. Last night Mandissa - the power gospel singer - was voted off. She would have been able to tackle a more difficult song such as Bo. Rhap. or Somebody to Love. I think that now Chris - the rock singer - will steal the show and put himself in the lead.

Well it wouldn't be a surprise since the AI website, and this website both say Queen will be performing on the results show.

I think that part of the show will be hilarious - not so much for Brian, who I'm sure will become overly involved in trying to coach them and will probably volunteer to produce all their albums, but because of Roger, who I'm sure will be miserable having to make nice and not say what he really thinks about a lot of the performers, which was probably "you guys really suck" - lol

Queenonline.com allready stated that the 8 finalists performed with QPR @ American Idol. Next Tuesday it will be shown on TV.

I guess it's Rock You and Champions at the end of the show, with the 8 finalists as backgroundsingers :|

I agree. Roger is just too cool. But I think he will enjoy being on TV in front of - (what?) 30 million or so viewers. Anyway, both of them do have some experience lately with young hopefuls - with the casting of all their productions of WWRY. So, Roger might be better with this exercise in patience than most of us would think. I'm so looking forward to it.

Yes, the contestants are extremely lucky, but also I'm going to laugh the entire time watching the idols try to sing Freddie Mercury!

And also Freddie's ashes will probably explode having to hear those idols trying to imitate his beautiful voice which no one will ever do oh this episode is going to be downright hilarious

I wonder how Simon will act and if he and Brian will butt heads. I'd be willing to be though that Simon has a great amount of respect for Brian and Roger. Roger and Simon will probably go out and get hammered after the show!!


Wo ist das kamerahhhhhhhhhhh!!!



NJ!!!

I have now TIVO'd everything to do with American Idol. I saw Mandisa (the gospel singer who got voted off this week) interviewed on "Idol Extra", which is a behind the scenes show on Fox's "Reality" channel. Idol Extra picks up right where the show leaves off on performance nights and they go backstage for interviews.

Mandisa said she had practiced Who Wants To Live Forever, but now she won't get to sing it. When asked if she was a Queen fan, she said, "Now I am."

They also interviewed the show's voice coach. She said the contestants had worked with Queen and Paul Rodgers. She said the greatest challenge with the Queen music was that the contestants were hyperventilating due to excitement (I don't know if she meant all the time or just while around Queen and Paul Rodgers). When asked if the contestants would get to perform with Queen on the show, she said that she wasn't telling. We would have to tune in to find out.

Randy Jackson (one of the judges) was also asked about the Queen music. He said it would be hard to sing and that he was wondering who was going to do Bo. Rhap.
